High Quality AA and AF
While we test all our games with maximum in-game settings, turning on Anti-Aliasing (AA) and Antistrophic Filtering (AF) helps take the intensity of our testing to another level.
Here we see video cards go from playable FPS to an unplayable FPS and the real power houses continue to help break that 60 FPS mark we always aim for to provide a smooth gaming experience.
Here we see strong gains again at both resolutions and you can see we've got some awesome performance at both.
While a number of the video cards here offer us playable FPS here at 1920 x 1200, you can see when we move to 2560 x 1600 all of the single GPU offerings struggle. With the PowerColor offering, though, you can see an extremely strong 84 FPS under these intensive settings.
Even with AA and AF on it comes as no surprise that Far Cry 2 isn't an issue for the PowerColor card here as the high-end single GPU offerings are also able to offer us very strong performance.
A lot like Aliens vs. Predator we can see that 1920 x 1200 isn't an issue with AA and AF on, but at 2560 x 1600 the single GPU cards just struggle. Like AvP, though, we can see that the PowerColor card again offers us a very strong number under the most intensive settings.
1920 x 1200 is again no issue for the cards here, but when we move to 2560 x 1600 we can see that we're getting borderline 60 FPS out of some cards. The PowerColor offering on the other hand breaks into the 100 FPS mark, hence ensuring smooth gameplay.
